Antonia Bird the wonderful human being and film & TV director passed away recently at the age of 54. I was blessed to have known and worked with her and she made a big and lasting impact on my life. It was 1999 I had recently adapted Irvine Welsh’s “Filth” into a screenplay for HAL ( a subsidiary of Indie film giant Miramax ) and Irvine graciously asked me to meet Antonia with a view to getting involved in an adaptation of a true story. Irvine had recently joined Antonia, Mark Cousins and Robert Carlyle in forming a production company called 4-Way.
